what # is overkill?

Postby Latreg » Fri Dec 14, 2007 9:34 pm

so I guess anything over 10% mr is useless, what about the saves and armor class? Max int and wis etc? someone with the power care to let us know the official notches etc? Some people say armor class less than minus 100 is helpful others say no it stops at -100. Can we get some official answers?

Yeah Yeah I know it will all change with 2.0 but for now THIS is the game we have to play with.

Some people are like slinkies, not really good for anything but you still cant help smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Whoever says it stops at -100 is officially retarded. That's the only answer you need to know. Do FK with me and then with Mufar or Lanot and you'll see why.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

It has to do with diminishing returns. ;)

MR is a coded cut-off at 10%.
AC is a cutoff at AC worn/spells 200, then you only benefit from agi after that. If you want a point of comparison, most high agi races and demons have -160 AC. An elf with 200 AC worn and 100 agi will have -151 AC. An elf with 200 AC worn and 116-117 agi will have -160 AC. I laughed when Teyaha told me Randar's mask was useless.

P.S. Diminishing returns does not come into play in these. They are all cutoffs afaik.

Theorycrafting with exact numbers does not belong here!
